Boombot Design Constraints

Boombot speakers are built with meticulous industrial design characteristics for function and acoustic performance.  Designs should not do anything to interfere with the acoustic performance of the product.  We do not typically change mechanical components on our products unless it is implemented throughout our entire product line.

There are several processes for applying graphics onto Boombot speakers.  We typically use water transfer to apply pattern and texture graphics.  Pad printing is used for stamping graphics on product.  Each method has some restrictions, but the two methods can also be used in combination to offer artists the most graphic freedom.  As a rule of thumb, if you are using a pattern, you should include source art that is at least 1000p x 1000p as vector art.  With pad printing, keep in mind that simplicity is going to be the most feasible and smaller graphics will work easier than larger ones.  Units can also be hand painted, but this increases production costs significantly.

In pad printing, avoid designing around the sharper lines of the product.  Think of pad printing as a stamp that is applied to a surface.  The stamp can bend around some soft contours but cannot form around sharper ones.

Color availability

For orders of 500 pieces or more, you can pick any pantone color your heart desires. For smaller run orders, you can pick from combinations of parts that we carry in regular stock. The grill is generally the most customizable area at low volume production. You can print in full color but we recommend doing at most 3-color vector graphics. Regularly stocked colors for parts are listed as follows:

Private Labeling your Boombot speaker

This is the easiest way to customize a speaker.  The larger eye on Boombot1/2 features a two-inch (50mm) diameter.  On the Boombot REX, you can apply graphics to the entire front grill. Because the grills are punched with holes for airflow, you generally have to restrict your artwork to more simple vector art.  These are perfect for logos and can be done in low production volumes (12 piece MOQ).

The Boombot REX offers added customization with custom grill colors and bezels. We stock parts in a variety of colors that allow you limitless design flexibility for on-demand mass customization.

The clips are also another place where designers can stamp artwork with a greater level of flexibility, although the minimum order quantity is higher because of the specialized surface treatments done on our clips.  Designs with custom clips require a 250 piece MOQ.

Designers interested in doing a full custom wrap with packaging must hit an MOQ of 500 pieces.  For pricing, email sales@boombotix.com for your custom project.
